Johnny Depp railed against cancel culture while appearing at the San Sebastian Film Festival on Wednesday.

The actor, 58, was present to receive the honorary Donostia Award and according to Deadline, used his speaking time to tell the audience he's been treated unfairly.

"It can be seen as an event in history that lasted for however long it lasted, this cancel culture, this instant rush to judgment based on what essentially amounts to polluted air," he said during a press conference.

"It's so far out of hand now that I can promise you that no one is safe. Not one of you. No one out that door. No one is safe," Depp continued. "It takes one sentence and there's no more ground, the carpet has been pulled. It's not just me that this has happened to, it's happened to a lot of people. This type of thing has happened to women, men. Children have suffered from various types of unpleasantries. Sadly at a certain point, they begin to think that it's normal. Or that it's them. When it's not."

Employees sue United Airlines over 'discriminatory' vaccine mandate, potentially thousands face firing

Six United Airlines employees are suing the company for its "draconian" Chinese coronavirus vaccine mandate, alleging the company has violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) by discriminating against them based on their religious and medical exemptions.

The class action lawsuit, which powerhouse Washington, D.C. law firm Schaerr Jaffe filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas on Tuesday, represents potentially at least 2,000 United Airlines employees. These workers have obtained religious or medical exemptions and will maintain employment, but they will be forced to live without pay and health benefits for up to six years while the company assesses the pandemic, according to the complaint.

"United's actions have left Plaintiffs with the impossible choice of either taking the COVID-19 vaccine, at the expense of their religious beliefs and their health, or losing their livelihoods," the complaint states. "In doing so, United has violated Title VII and the ADA by failing to engage in the interactive process and provide reasonable accommodations, and also by retaliating against employees who engaged in protected activity."

Remote learning killed the myth that homeschooled children are the ones who lack socialization

After more than a year of remote learning, students in New York City finally went back to school. Sadly, the city's Department of Education fear of COVID-19 and servitude to teachers' unions means that these schools will more closely resemble Siberian gulags than places of learning.

A recent opinion piece in the New York Post details the ridiculous lengths that many of Gotham's schools are going to in order to defeat the virus, including "masked and distanced" recess, health concerns over many sports and other extracurricular activities that require "increased exhalation," and the cancellation of field trips, group projects, and class parties. Despite returning to school, New York City kids are still forbidden from connecting meaningfully with their peers.

Ask any homeschooling parent to discuss the pushback that he's received from friends and family over the years and he'll tell you that the need for his children to be "properly socialized" has topped the list of concerns. "How will your kids learn to interact with different kinds of people if they don't go to school?" these mostly well-meaning people ask, implying that learning at home will doom your children to a life of misanthropic isolation.

COVID-19: 'Virtually any child' would get coronavirus between 12 and 15 without vaccination - Whitty

Children with masks

Professor Chris Whitty said that the highest rate of coronavirus transmission is currently occurring in children
Approximately half of all children have already had coronavirus during the pandemic, Professor Chris Whitty said, adding: "The great majority of children who have not currently had COVID are going to get it at some point."

Virtually any child between the ages of 12 and 15 would get COVID-19 at some point without vaccination, England's chief medical officer has said.

Professor Chris Whitty said that the highest rate of coronavirus transmission is currently occurring in children of this age group.

Approximately half of all children have already had coronavirus during the pandemic, he added.


Comment: It is a lie. If we follow the science as they want to say to the people, then we can see that the children are at no risk from Covid and they are certainly not a vector for spreading the infection. Recent German studies show quite the opposite of what they claim.

According to Dr.Reinhard Berner from the University Hospital of Dresden, children may even act as a brake on infection.

Other statistics about the Covid complications in children say the same. Children are not more in danger from Covid than from the seasonal flu.


Comment: After almost two years of living the Covid plandemic nightmare, most of the population already has natural immunity. People who need hospitalization can be cured very fast and effectively with very cheap and safe drugs like ivermectin and chloroquine.

Lockdowns and fear propaganda took far more lives than the virus itself.

Children are suffering from long-term psychological problems because of these inhuman totalitarian and unscientific measures that are imposed on us by the psychopathic elites and their obedient quasi-scientists and corrupted politicians.

Los Angeles, CA — For decades now, federal government and their cohorts in law enforcement have been carrying out theft of the citizenry on a massive scale using Civil Asset Forfeiture (CAF).

The 1980's-era laws were designed to drain resources from powerful criminal organizations, but CAF has become a tool for law enforcement agencies across the U.S. to steal money and property from countless innocent people.

Comment: When we see examples like this, and also how our "authorities" have responded to the current Covid protests around the world, it's fairly clear that their agenda is to protect the elite and themselves, with very little focus on protecting the working-class population.

'Would you like Pfizer with that?' New Zealanders could get Covid jab with fast-food fix

New Zealanders could be given Covid-19 vaccines while they wait for fast food.
Government is in talks with KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell to administer vaccinations while customers wait in line.

New Zealanders looking to get a fast-food fix could soon be asked if they would like a vaccine with their meal. The country is aiming to vaccinate at least 90% of its population and the government is now in talks with fast-food giant KFC to help reach that goal.

"We just want to reach out to where people are," the deputy prime minister Grant Robertson told RNZ on Thursday morning.

Comment: It's hard to say which is more sad: that New Zealanders are rabid fast food enthusiasts or that the government wants to capitalize on this fact to increase vaccination uptake. Neither fact gives much hope for the future of the country.

Diversity distraction: Washington Post adding 41 editing jobs, vows to increase number of editors of color

The Washington Post
The Washington Post plans to hire more than three dozen editors as part of its latest expansion and push for a more diverse newsroom.

In a memo to staff on Monday, Executive Editor Sally Buzbee and the rest of the newspaper's leadership team said adding the 41 editing jobs will grow the newspaper's "capacity to produce timely breaking news, revelatory enterprise and definitive investigative work; create visually rich stories that our audiences find compelling; cover topics that resonate with younger, more diverse readers; and develop innovations that will define a new era of digital journalism."

Hiring for the new jobs will also allow the Post to increase the number of journalists of color in editing roles, the outlet's leadership wrote.

The FBI removes evidence and a Ford Mustang from the home of Brian Laundrie.
FBI agents swarmed Brian Laundrie's home in Florida on Monday, declaring it a "crime scene" and hauling out his parents one day after a body believed to be his missing girlfriend, Gabby Petito, was found in Wyoming.

A Ford Mustang registered to Laundrie's father that his family said Brian drove last week to the wildlife reserve where police have been searching for him, was also hauled away.

About a dozen agents wearing bulletproof vests descended just before 10 a.m. on the Laundrie family's home on Wabasso Avenue in North Port, shouting "Search warrant!" before entering through an unlocked door in the front.

Remains consistent with missing 22-year-old Gabby Petito discovered in Wyoming national park - FBI

Authorities believe a body found near Grand Teton National Park is Gabby Petito, the missing girl who drew the nation's attention after her fiance returned from a cross-country trip without her. It's not yet clear how she died.

The body, found on Sunday near the eastern border of Grand Teton, is believed to be that of Petito, the FBI reported, adding that the remains were found by law enforcement. Her family has been notified, but a full forensic identification has not yet been attempted.

...

The young couple were reportedly childhood sweethearts who met while growing up in Long Island, setting out on their cross-country van adventure - which would be extensively documented on Instagram by Petito - in July. Ten days after Laundrie returned home in the van without the girl, her parents filed a missing persons report with Suffolk County police.

The last confirmed sighting of the couple by police was on August 12, when the van was pulled over for hitting a curb and the young travelers were found to have been fighting to such an extent the cops mulled charging at least Petito with domestic violence. The pair were separated for the night, with Laundrie taken to a hotel and Petito allotted the van.

The Petitos' lawyer said the family would make a public statement in the future and asked that they be given space to mourn their loss.

UPDATE: From Fox News:
The FBI on Tuesday afternoon confirmed that the remains investigators discovered on Sunday in the Teton-Bridger National Forest belonged to missing 22-year-old woman Gabby Petito.

"Teton County Coroner Dr. Brent Blue confirmed the remains are those of Gabrielle Venora Petito, date of birth March 19, 1999. Coroner Blue's initial determination for the manner of death is homicide. The cause of death remains pending final autopsy results," the FBI tweeted Tuesday with a statement from the Jackson, Wyoming, coroner.

The FBI and local law enforcement agencies were searching for Petito over the weekend in a remote campsite area on the border of the national forest and Grand Teton National Park. Remains discovered on Sunday were transported to Blue's office for an autopsy, which he performed on Tuesday. The final report nor the exact cause of death have been released.

New Zealand police found three buckets of KFC chicken and an undisclosed quantity of fries when they arrested two men trying to cross into Auckland despite city's strict lockdown.
Two men tried to reach city - where Covid restrictions banned takeaways - with $100,000, three buckets of chicken and an undisclosed quantity of fries, police say.

Two men have been arrested after police said they found them with a car boot-full of Kentucky fried chicken and over $100,000 in cash as they tried to cross the border into Auckland despite New Zealand's strict Covid-19 lockdown.

The men were arrested after allegedly trying to flee from police near the Auckland border. When their car was searched, police said they found a large quantity of KFC, as well as the cash and a number of empty ounce bags.

Comment: This is both hilarious and disgusting. The fact that it's considered a 'serious breach of lockdown laws' to satisfy a fast food craving tells you all you need to know about the surreal and ridiculous totalitarian regime we're currently living under.
